We are continuously looking to spread our reach to current and potential sponsors who can help us influence the lives of our minority youth. We must no longer sit on the sidelines and watch the game. With our time, talent and treasure we are working hard to influence our youth, but also impact industry with minority youth who will be college or trade school prepared and filling roles at various companies in the Greater Kansas City area. Your sponsorship,relationships and willingness to influence our youth creates a pipeline of minority youth that will be ready to change the world.
